Amazing Kurdish Women Still Fighting IS

The Kurdish women's defense unit is stilling kicking ass in Iraqi Kurdistan, and they issued a message on International Women's Day.

“We are resisting against members of (the Islamic State group), and we will continue to resist until the end. We call on all women to increase (their) strength and break the silence about these massacres,” the group, YJA-STAR, said in a statement. 
Ferasin Berfin, a female combatant, said March 8 is an important day for women. "It was created by the resistance of all women in the world. We must all take to the streets. As Kurdish women, every day is March 8.” 
“We have become aware and fight against the patriarchal dominant mindset with the leadership of leader Abdullah Ocalan," she added.
... 
“Kurdish women have paid a very high price. We must resist in all areas of life, and now we are part of the frontline to fight members of Daesh,” said Berfin. “We have given our word to the people, we will continue to resist until victory." 
Sitrra Jiyan, who is of Armenian origin, said that in the "annals of history, women have been considered the goddesses of freedom and equality, but women have fallen captive of the mentality dominated by men.” 
“Women have a strong will and energy. We salute the resistance of the YPS-Jin (Women's Civilian Defense Units) with the spirit of March 8. Worker women are women who resist," she added.

If you didn't know about them, these feminist resistance groups who are actually kicking Islamic State ass are fucking awesome and my idols and you should read all about them. They're making history right now.
